Oil and Gas Investment Success
with 3D Seismic Technology…
Technological developments in reservoir imaging are largely responsible for the increasing success rates of exploration and development in the oil and gas industry . Using geophones, scientists bounce sound waves into the earth and then construct models of underground rock formations. The models were initially two-dimensional. Unfortunately, 2-D Seismic Models are difficult to read. Companies who rely on them often drill a high number of unproductive wells. The introduction of 3-D Seismic Technology was a turning point for the oil and gas industry. 3-D techniques have significantly reduced the number of dry holes drilled, thus increasing the number of productive wells.
Currently, massive amounts of old seismic data is being compiled and then fine-tuned to create 3-D Seismic images of possible hydrocarbon zones. The 3-D seismic data is then reviewed by expert geologists, who determine the likelihood oil or gas in a given area. If the geologists determine that the area is likely to contain hydrocarbons, they use the information gathered from the seismic data to predict/estimate how much oil or gas might be in the reservoir
